The Department: Software Engineering
Gemini is regulated and licensed like a bank, but it’s run like a tech startup, and engineering is the core of the company. There’s a wide range of tough problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to finding new techniques to combat fraud, to shaving microseconds off our API response times, and everything in between.
All of Gemini’s engineers are able to work across the software platform, not just on their own specialization or subteam. We value a thoughtful, collaborative software development process, coupled with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and delivering software.
The Role: Principal Software Engineer
We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced Principal Engineer to lead the design, build and architecture of mission critical systems as part of Gemini’s broader product lines and services. We focus on innovating how we deliver software and this individual will be working with our engineering teams to improve our ability to deliver high quality solutions to our customers fast and efficiently. Even more so than in other engineering roles, this individual must be an outstanding communicator and bridge-builder across different parts of the technology organization and the business. You’ll put your experience to work with helping development teams design and implement their solution. This role can be based at any of our office hubs (New York area preferred, Chicago, Portland, Oregon, San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles or Singapore offices).
It Pays to Work Here
Salary Range: In compliance with the New York City Pay Transparency Law, the base salary range for this role is between $198,000 - $277,000 in New York City. This range is not inclusive of our discretionary bonus or equity package. When determining a candidate’s compensation, we consider a number of factors including skillset, experience, job scope, and current market data.
At Gemini, we strive to build diverse teams that reflect the people we want to empower through our products, and we are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status. Equal Opportunity is the Law, and Gemini is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. If you have a specific need that requires accommodation, please let a member of the People Team know.
